How to unlock the MP5 in Modern Warfare 2
In the Modern Warfare 2 beta, the Lachmann Sub/MP5 isn''t technically available with normal tools, but you can still access it without performing a small glitch. Below, you''ll find a list of steps you must complete before launching the MP5.
Modern Warfare 2 will break down the best MP5 loadout after you know how to unlock the MP5.
Best MP5 loadout in Modern Warfare 2
The best MP5 loadout for Modern Warfare 2 is focused on control and power while maintaining the speed that makes this weapon so popular. In just a few hits, Modern Warfare 2 already has a ludicrous time to kill, and this MP5 loadout will full advantage of that by dropping enemies. With the startling speed on offer, you''ll have the opportunity to kill enemies before they have a chance to react.
In Modern Warfare 2, here are the best MP5 attachments.
- Receiver: Lach-9
- Barrel: FTAC M-Sub 12"
- Muzzle: SA Schalldampfer 99
- Optic: Cronen Mini Red Dot
- Stock: No stock
- Underbarrel: Lockgrip Precision 40
Five attachment slots are available for your MP5. The above attachments make the MP5 much easier to control by managing the sharp recoil that''s common across many Modern Warfare 2 weapons. They also increase bullet velocity and damage range, solidifying the MP5 as one of the best guns in Modern Warfare 2.
Speed is the name of the game, so we''ll begin with the stock or the lack thereof. There are a few attachments in this loadout that will slow down the Lachmann Sub, so we recommend using the No Stock option to correct any of your obstacles. This will provide a bump for your movement speed, ADS speed, sprint to fire speed, and hip fire control, which gives you an advantage over other attachments that we''ll explain below.
The Lachmann Sub is already a powerhouse owing to the low TTK in Modern Warfare 2, but it gets even better with the FTAC M-Sub 12" this boosts your damage range, making the MP5 much better at short-medium range. Both of these attachments should help you down by decreasing your movement and ADS speed, but those are fortunately eliminated by the No Stock option.
The Lockgrip Precision 40, which enhances hipfire accuracy and control, should be equipped with previous attachments. However, the No Stock should keep the MP5 looking decent.
The MP5 is perfect for short-medium combat, so your secondary weapon should be included in the long-range selection. The FTAC Recon or Signal 50 are ideal options for speeding toward targets, but the Signal 50 is extremely effective if you''re looking for some quick shots.
Best MP5 class setup in Modern Warfare 2
Weapons may sound useful, but you shouldn''t ignore perks and equipment. Here''s how to get your loadout enhanced with explosive weapons and other options to destroy opponents. Below, you''ll find a list of benefits and equipment that you should use in Modern Warfare 2.
- Basic perk 1: Overkill
- Basic perk 2: Double Time
- Bonus perk: Quick Fix
- Ultimate perk: Ghost
- Tactical grenade: Flash Grenade
- Lethal grenade: Semtex
- Field upgrade: Dead Silence
If you want to use one of the long-range weapons described above, the Overkill perk is essential for this class setup. Equip Double Time is your second basic perk, which allows you to stay in touch with modern Warfare 2''s fast pace for years. Active your Dead Silence field upgrade to temporarily make your footsteps silent.
During a match, your bonus and ultimate perks will trigger, meaning you''ll need to wait to see the whole effects. When you get a kill, the Quick Fix bonus perk will significantly boost your health, making it much easier to survive. You may also save money by using the Ghost ultimate perk, including when you get a kill. After a few minutes, the Ghost ultimate perk will activate and allow you to hide from UAVs, Portable Radars, and heartbeat sensors.
The rapid speed of Modern Warfare 2 makes every corner dangerous, as you never know when an enemy may pop up and kill you in a flash. A Semtex is equally useful, but its impressive ability should strike you an additional kill or two. If you''re in objective game modes such as Domination, throwing both of your grenades towards an enemy flag should be sufficient to clear the area. This should give your team a clear area.
